Who We Are

Our Story

Where We've Been

ADPma was founded over twenty years ago. Back then, the financial survival of our small start-up demanded a “never say ‘no’” attitude. In this world of PMA, we found success in finding a way to say “yes” to any opportunity we could find.  Necessity, coupled with an intense passion for innovating and problem-solving, paved the way to our wide range of capabilities and expansive network of manufacturing partners.

What began out of pure necessity remains the framework that separates us from the crowd – the character and fortitude to deliver on promises no matter the circumstances, an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, getting the job done right the first time, every time, and leveraging all the resources within our power to provide the widest range of solutions to our partners.

Our Vision

Where we're going


ADPma has recently been acquired by “buy and grow” private investors committed to supporting our long term expansion and success.

We have ambitious goals for exponential growth without compromise to our standards of excellence in design, engineering, certification, quality, and production.

We seek to become the industry’s leader in a variety of market segments: airlines, OEM, MRO, cargo, business/general aviation, lessors, defense, and space.

Our commitment to success is exhibited by onboarding the industry’s top leaders and talent. We are currently involved in aggressive expansion plans and recruiting. If you share our forward-thinking mindset and unwavering commitment to quality, we invite you to join our team, either through a career or with a business partnership.
